Thx to Thrillist for this…
This Memorial Day weekend, get VIP access to the most awesomely non-romantic picnic of all time: Brewers’ PicNyc, a two-day takeover of Governors Island by the Pig Island/Meatopia guys, bringing together dozens of craft breweries — from Brooklyn to Warrenville, IL’s Two Brothers – plus a smorgasbord of street food (holla back, Treat Truck) and live ukulele and bluegrass music on historic Colonels’ Row. Granted, The Colonel probably didn’t do a lot of rowing after eating all that fried chicken, but still, live music!
What your VIP access gets you:
- Early Admission at 11a, giving you an hour to totally own the place, and hang the drapes that you like.
- VIP Beer & Food Pass. That means unlimited beer, food and VIP line access, plus the right to ignore that guy in the unfortunate sun hat when he bitches about your VIP line access.
- Food from over 20 vendors, including Luke’s Lobster, Jimmy’s No. 43, Brooklyn Farmacy, The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, Event Spoon and Fette Sau.
- Roped off Thrillist VIP area near beer tents. This land was made for you and you.
Brewers’ PicNyc is the ultimate city picnic!
Brought to you by Food Karma Projects (producers of Pig Island, Meatopia 2010 and Brewers 4 Brewers), Brewers’ PicNyc is a two-day celebration (May 29-30/11am-5pm) of everything that makes NYC great: street food, craft beer and music on Governors Island’s historic Colonels’ Row.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Added Value Farm – a sustainable farm on Governors Island. This is Governors Island’s official 2011 kickoff, and the unofficial beginning of summer, so spend your Memorial Day weekend with us – and about 5,000 of your neighbors – eating well and doing good.
Food Vendors: Australian Meat Pies, Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, Brooklyn Farmacy, Event Spoon, Fette Sau, Jimmy’s No. 43, Luke’s Lobster and more!
Beer Vendors: Featuring Goose Island’s summer beers, plus Brooklyn Brewery, Kelso, Palm, Sixpoint, Two Brother’s and more!
For a limited time, get the Thrillist Rewards’ all-you-can-eat-and-drink VIP pass! For just $55 ($30 off), you get early access too all the booze and eats that your very full heart could ever desire. For other ticket options, visit here.
